Frio Hues, Oil on Canvas
--- COME SEE ONE OF THE BEST CONTEMPORARY WESTERN PAINTERS OF OUR TIME!!!- MARK KEATHLEY
Known more as a nostalgic landscape and scenery painter, Mark has done some amazing work painting and illustrating the Native Americans, Old West, Texas Wildlife as well as an abundance of other subjects and genres. Mark Keathley’s evocative sensibilities are hammered home with lively landscapes and nostalgic pictorial epiphanies of Western Cowboy and Native American cultural identity. Keathley’s painterly essence is found in his quasi-hyper realism. Capturing water ripples, muscle contours, textures and various other details, Keathley proves that Contemporary Western Art is making significant contributions to the Art World.
In the early 1990’s, he entered a couple of paintings in the Cheyenne, Wyoming “Old West Museum Show” and won a couple of awards for his work. He also attended the “Texas Ranger Hall of Fame Art Show” in Waco Texas and twice won the “Popular Vote Award” for a couple of his pieces two years in a row.
Another Good Year, Oil on Canvas
Mark is able to capture that perfect moment that you might experience on a hike through the mountains when a majestic elk might come out for an unforgettable experience; or even immortalize on canvas a moment in time when the light, the water, and the gentle involvement of a man and his horse all come together in a masterful composition…This is where he wants you to stay - not admiring his ability, but rather inspired to live. -www.markkeathley.com
